SARRA, Martin August - It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Martin (Marty) Sarra, on September 21, 2021, in Kingston, Ontario, at the age of 75, following a courageous battle with cancer.
Cherished husband of Aimee Axler, beloved father of Samantha (Amadea and Magdalena) and Danielle (Jolie and Carmen) and adored stepfather of Ben, Nick and Meg Shannon.
Martin will be dearly missed by nephews Matthew and Mike Hedge and by sister-in-law Anne Larcade and their families.
Born in Camden, New Jersey, in 1946, Martin grew up there and in Pennsauken, NJ, before attending North Carolina Wesleyan College, in Rocky Mount, NC.
He moved to Canada in 1969, settling in Toronto and Kingston and becoming a citizen in 1975.
Martin became a member activist, political leader, and in 1979, a staff member with the Ontario Public Service Employees Union, until retiring in 2016.
Martin's greatest legacy will be the generosity, loyalty, hospitality and love extended to his family and many friends.
